Which film is actually the scariest is very much a personal opinion. Some people may doubt paranormal horror films, while other viewers walk away from the cinema because they find such a film terrifying.

An investigation by company Boradbandchoices has now revealed which film is the scariest of all. The company chose a nice, but of course not very qualitative method for this. Based on recommendations from reviewers and Reddit users, a list of the 50 Scariest Horror Movies was drawn up. Then a panel of 50 people watched the films.

These 50 participants were also given a heart rate monitor. The heart rate results were compared afterwards, on the average heart rate and the highest peak in the beat. Based on the average heart rate, the “scariest horror movie ever” was chosen. Below the top ten:

1. Sinister (2012)

2. Insidious (2010)
